which was named for him under duress by one person.

14. It's in the interview. Apparently it was a demand by right wingers to get the airport expansion

They really are good at their naming efforts and cult of personality

They are indeed good at coercion - made all the easier by the mob mentality among many of their voters.

3. Having grown up in the 50's I view John Wayne as someone that was mainstream of that era.

Civil rights was finally being addressed. The WASP culture had little or no regard for the plight of native Americans, and any talk of gays was definitely not something that was discussed in public. I don't think Wayne was much different than most white Americans of those days. White privilege and supremacy were in their "heyday" in those times.

For me it just shows how far we have come since those days and really how far we have to go. I was never a big John Wayne fan but I think the generation before me "the greatest generation" were his biggest fans. Maybe it gives a little more insight into that generation?

Should they rename the airport - That would be up to the people of Orange County.

4. His old interviews have been around. People didn't know how he was?

Anyone over a certain age is aware of what he was as a person.

6. One of Wayne's earliest roles was Ethan Edwards...

a Confederate war veteran who wants to kill his niece (Natalie Woods) because her native American kidnappers dressed her up as a member of the tribe in "The Searchers" (1956).
Just sayin'

After playing a belligerent, sexist, hard drinking asshole in every single movie he ever made.
I knew he was playing John Wayne in every one.

How about changing it to Larry Craig Wide Stance Bathroom Stall International Airport?

The man really never got the recognition he deserved, IMO.

21. and a draft dodger.

it was said, he avoided the draft so he could continue to shtup marlene dietrich...even though he was married with a few kids.

he apparently got a deferment because him being a father of 3 but it had more to due with his star rising just after making Stagecoach that he avoided going. he thought it was going to be a career killer going to war. funny that.

I guess my uncle who had two kids at the time, didn't qualify for that same type of deferment because he didn't make a hit movie. LOL

9. The really worst part of the Wayne thing...

He was the role model of how young, patriotic men should be.

Now 50 years later we are condemning men who were schooled to be exactly like that.

12. Things ahve changed, people's attitudes have changed.

Are we going to go back in time and start prosecuting everyone who said something racist? My god, no one from the 50s 60s 70s and 80s would come out of that unscathed. We can all hope to better ourselves with education, empathy, and understanding and become better people.

I've known that John Wayne was a member of the John Birch society since I was a kid. As sad as it may be, people tolerated them a lot more back then than they do today. Look forward. If we start down this path than we should also get really extreme and start vilifying this country's founding fathers - most of whom were slave owners.

16. All I can do is defer to by quote the great Gil Scott Heron

"And when America found itself having a hard time facing the future, they looked for people like John Wayne. But since John Wayne was no longer available, they settled for Ronald Reagan and it has placed us in a situation that we can only look at -like a "B" movie."

Now we look for people like fucking donald fucking j fucking trump.

Leaders of the free world? Please, don't make me laugh.

So we could have ended up with John Wayne in the White House? Sadly, it sounds like something republicans would do. They are all about perception over substance.

34. John Wayne went to a dinner party that was scheduled the night of JFK's assassination,

hosted by the Reagans.

I don't know what worse: that Nancy Reagan refused to cancel the party (and warned guests not to talk about you-know-what) or that guests like Wayne didn't cancel that night.
